TransTape created a system to ensure people are able to successfully use the product and I’m here to help you understand what size and which products you need to get started chest binding safely today. 

What size TransTape do I need?

TransTape currently comes in multiple sizes and tones to best fit your needs. Sizing is a personal preference but here is a quick guideline: typically, A/B cups will want to use the small, 3-inch wide roll as you will not need as much skin coverage. B/C cups typically benefit from the medium, 4-inch size as it tends to cover the breast well with one strip. D/DD+ and larger tend to enjoy the large, 5-inch wide size as it helps to cover a large amount of skin and tissue with a single piece, but we have had larger chested customers report back that they prefer to use the small size strips because they are easier to manage.


The creator of TransTape was a “long” C cup and he utilized the medium size on the majority of his chest tissue and the small size to smooth out the extra tissue that would squish out the top. There are many different ways you can use TransTape so you may need to experiment. Add multiple rolls to your cart and the more rolls you purchase, the more discount you’ll receive.

What products do I need?

The best place to start if you’ve never used TransTape before is a starter kit. There are samples of each of the products to create a “starting” kit. Everything you need to start open chest binding all in one place for you to easily get going.

Starter Kit Contents:

1 Roll of TransTape 

4 oz Removal Oil

Small Repairing Salve

1 Ten-Pack Nipple Guards

Substitutes I can use if I’m on a budget but still want to be safe using TransTape?

Although it is not necessary to use TransTape’s oil blend, we highly recommend it based on its healing properties and essential oils used to aid in repairing and restoring skin. To safely remove TransTape you can use ANY skin-safe oil if you’re on a budget but we do highly suggest staying away from baby oil. Baby Oil is a synthetic mineral oil that is completely foreign to the human body. Mineral Oil is made from the byproduct of the distillation of gasoline from crude oil. It acts as a thin layer on the skin making it difficult to absorb and resulting in clogged pores causing the toxins that we sweat out to remain in our body for a longer period of time. It is known to cause damage once absorbed into the body, absorbing and depleting our body of nutrients before they can be processed. We urge you to refrain from using such oils on your delicate skin while using TransTape.*
